Since arriving in Papeete to do some boat projects, we found ourselves “reinventing the wheel” - asking the same questions hundreds of others have asked - in trying to track down parts, services, doctors, dentists, etc.
We have often said we wished there were a Cruiser’s Guide to Tahiti and French Polynesia modeled after the valuable Panama City Cruisers Guide put together by Debi Shaimas on SV Serenity.
So we started compiling this one and what we have so far is now available online and downloadable as a pdf.

They have a sail loft upstairs and a rigging shop downstairs. They also have use of a dock (extra fee) at the back of their shop

Pacco does welding. Jacaranda had a new SS riser welded by Pacco and he did a nice job. We supplied all the SS material but they can as well
